Fresh out the kitchen by soupcan13 Fresh out the kitchen by soupcan13
getting my confidence back after the long period of inactivity....I felt the last hook was way way to busy so I tried to bring this back to basic clean lines without feeling boring....first time I've tried lashings on non traditional parts of the hook...

update:this hook is now for sale here!

An awesome design. I dig the non-traditional lashing on this one.

Thank you! Glad to hear you dig it, ive gotta figure out a better way to tie the lashings on the really small parts....im thinking of trying another one and cutting channels in the back so that I can tie the entire hook with one continuous strand of string....time will tell...

A continuous strand of lashing would be pretty cool but I'm at such a loss when it comes to figuring out lashing. I can't even get some of the simple bindings, so whatever you try I have a feeling it will work out.

awwww, just get some practice on something larger and then work your way down. Try practicing with a broom handle and a shoe lace, and once you have it locked down scale it down to your hooks.

I don't think I've got the right bits though. When I try punching holes into my bone pieces there's a 50/50 chance the bit will snap the hook in half or splinter it into hundreds of little pieces. I've tried to slow down the dremel but it just makes it harder to control. Eventually I'll get a flex shaft that will allow for smaller work but until then its a crap shoot.

Yah, I use a bit to punch a hole then I use rounded cutters to expand the hole. I don't know if my dremel is just to powerful or I'm doing something wrong O-o. The first time a hook exploded I about came out of my skin. one half of the bone flew into my face and the other half decided to cling to the dremel bit while it was still on....not fun.
